CleanTech Recruitment

RWA has a keen interest in, and knowledge of, the CleanTech recruitment sector and partners with pioneering cleantech companies working in the areas of:

  • Clean Energy
  • Smart Buildings
  • Energy Management
  • Smart Metering Systems
  • Air and Environmental Management
  • Smart Cities
  • cleantech Data Analytics
  • Renewable Energy

RWA is a little bit different and we think the candidates you are looking for are just a little bit different too. We know that quite apart from looking for a seriously skilled Engineer, Developer, Data Scientist, Project Manager, Technical Consultant or Senior Executive, in addition, every candidate must share your passion for clean technology, be highly motivated self-starters and well-rounded people.

This is a growing sector. To meet the challenges of urbanisation, scarce resources, climate change, energy security and a steadily growing global population, the cleantech sector will need to recruit smart people.  And that’s exactly what RWA has been engaged in since 1987.

World Class Clients

Typical of our clients in the cleantech field is PassivSystems, a Global cleantech 100 company and Red Herring Global Finalist with one of the most technologically advanced and affordable Home Energy Management Systems in the world.

Richard Wheeler

Richard Wheeler is a leading recruiter with 30 years’ experience. He knows how to identify excellent hires, how to sell the benefits of working for a cleantech company and how to talk to other humans. Crucially, he also knows the industry inside out.

Here at RWA all things cleantech have moved to the next level, quite literally.  Richard lives in an old watermill which he is in the process of restoring and converting from its original raison-d’etre - that of harnessing the power of water for grinding flour - to a hydro electric power scheme providing electricity for the house.  At the time of writing the 9 foot undershot wheel has been duly restored with all the necessary turbine wheels/drives in place; just the small matter of the hydro….and clearing several hundred yards of leat!

Women in IT Careers - The Gender Gap

The UK faces a worsening gender gap in its flourishing IT industry, according to a new study.

The Women in IT scorecard looked at gender trends from secondary education through to the work place.

It indicates women account for just 16% of the UK IT workforce.  And the problem starts early - despite consistently out-performing boys in computing A-level results, girls account for just 6.5% of those taking the exam.
